Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Golden Gate Bay Cruise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We toook a mid-morning Bay Cruse Tour that was wonderful. The narration was most informative, One of the most interesting parts was the narrative by both a former prisioner and a guard talking about Alcatrez. The boat ride gave amply opportunity for photos and ideas for other vistas once back in San Francisco. Clearly weather conditions are pivotal for best enjoying this ride so plan ahead and be selective!
This cruise is perfect for those who don't have the time (or energy) to do several attractions separately. It runs over the course of 1 hour and starts off at Fisherman's Wharf (which is worth checking out anyway). It then takes you across the bay to the Golden Gate bridge, the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, and finally past Alcatraz before going back to shore. The tour is also quite informative and fills you in on the history of the city and its attractions.
The views of the Bay are quite nice and you can see a lot of the city (and of course take tons of photos).
Highly recommend it!
booking on line was easy-very well done...especially liked the earphones since I am very hard of hearing even with my hearing aids....enjoyed the tour.
This was a wonderful experience! I have a hearing loss so the headphones made the tour so much more enjoyable. The staff was friendly and helpful, lines short, the perfect outing!!!
Loved this cruise and hope someday I can come back and do it again.
Excellent tour with great information. We took our 16 month old granddaughter and she loved it.
Great tour, views, and information (via the headset). I'd go again!
This tour was amazing my husband and I truly enjoyed it. I will definetely will recomended to friends and family.
The courtesy of the staff was much appreciated it too.

It was so great my mom n brother loved the hole tour. The view was wonderful.
Very interesting audio tour and visual was incredible. Golden Gate view was spectacular. Tour takes you very close to Alcatraz. Great photo ops throughout cruise.
It was great. Loved going b Alcatraz. Great to be under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Great tour! Perfect length and great views of all of the major sites. I especially enjoyed the view from underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. The audio guide was very informative, the staff was friendly, and the tour disembarked on time. I highly recommend it, but be sure to bundle up!
There were only 8 people on out boat and they still went out! I liked the individual narration.
It was a memorable trip. It was a pleasant feeling going under the Golden gate bridge.
This tour is a must do. You may want to skip to go to Alcatraz and do this because this tour will take you right below the golden gate bridge and the audio tour is just too good. They will pass from alcatraz as well and the audio tour gives you a detailed info about everything you can possibly see while on cruise.
I had a GREATTTT time!!! :-))) it was SO EASY to book the tour! very efficient and quick and easy process from booking until the very end :-))) I lookk forward to coming back and going through Viator!! THANK YOU!!
